Saying that it is time that even the smallest Americans make a positive contribution, the Obama Administration issued an Executive Order reversing the Bush Administrations policy of prohibiting the use tax dollars to fund the harvesting of stem cells from aborted fetuses.
In the new America we are building, all will be asked to make sacrifices for the common good, the Executive Order read. What would otherwise be mere waste biological refuse from uncompleted pregnancies can be used for the advancement of scientific research and the treatment of the seriously ill.
Surely, it is more noble for these tissues to be used to help treat the sick then that they be simply discarded, the President argued. Saving the lives of other Americans is, in my view, a more practical and moral disposition of these materials. It gives hope to the hopeless. It is the kind of change we can believe in.

This makes me want to puke. Monster science is not good science. It’s the stuff that nightmares are made of.
This is so ridiculous.
The Federal Government is losing money, yet they want to implement a program that we not only can’t afford, but they want to do research on something that has proven not to have any effect at all, since adult stem cell research shows promise, not embryonic.
On top of that, a person was interviewed in a wheelchair who feels hopeful now for the 1st time, hopeful about something that has shown no promise, yet it makes people feel good, so that’s all that really matter.
Liberalism is just another name for insanity.
In the new America we are building”
It makes me weep!
Isn't that just about the definition of government...to pour money into an immoral dead end when an ethical and highly successful option is wide open? And then the dems want me to believe they will make gov't more efficient and be able to run the entire nation's health care? Not a chance.
Satire, sick nonetheless but satire.
Zero WANTS (desperately lives for this “embryonic stem cell research” BECAUSE he (and Michelle to a lesser degree) hates the Evangelists in particular, Catholic Church in general for its opposition to abortion, and lives for abortion.
All abortion, all the time, every time.
Embryonic stem cell research doesn’t appear to be necessary. This is just another gift to those who supported Obama. By the way, I thought the White House was overwhelmed. Yet they find time to sign executive orders like this one, and to propose every Democrat spending scheme.
So, Barry the bastard klown will kill whomever he chooses so that the 'sacrifices' are accomplished for the common good. And this lying a**hole says he's not a socialist? ... MAybe he isn't, he's gone all the way to flatout Marxism.
